6:33am
bomb, but without the radiation. >> the number of undetected city killers is very large. it's in the range of 10,000 or more. >> better detection of these events could better help us evacuate target areas, as well as one day even redirect their path. san francisco's brand new exploratorium opens april 17th. abc7 is the exploratorium's official tv partner with exclusive access to the historic science museum. this morning abc7 news anchor dan ashley shows us a behind the scenes look at how the exploratorium is taking hands on to a whole new realm. >> the new exploratorium is on pier 15 at the san francisco's waterfront. the building has been renovated and with just over three weeks until opening, the scramble is on to get the exhibits finished. a lot of that work is being done here in the machine, shop but one big change for the new exploratorium is that in the
6:34am
past the focus was on exhibits made by the staff. that's what these guys are doing. but in the new building there is an entire gallery dedicated to visitors, to give them the chance to go right in there and make things for themselves. this is the future home of what's called the tinkering studio. it's a concept the exploratorium tried out last year at the old building with a cozy make-it-yourself space and several huge events where people reconnect with how things work. no right or wrong, just tools, supplies, and imagination. it was a huge hit. >> you learn and think differently when you are constructing things. >> karen wilkinson is director of the tinkering studio. karen and her staff are very busy assembling a wild collection of interesting gadgets to get your creative juices flowing. this table is full of parts you would find inside things. >> inside of toys and school alarms. this one is a doorbell from my house, my old house. >> tinkerer ryan jenkins showed me some of the crazy contraptions that will be on
6:35am
display for inspiration. >> this is a scribbling machine which is something we make with kids. basically a motor, a battery and little piece of glue. when you turn it on it vibrates around and these markers draw a pattern on the piece of tape. it scribbles. >> the centerpiece of the new gallery is a giant clock still not quite finished. it's covered with tiny tinkerers, and it's work away to get visitors into the mood. and check out with electrified bench that uses a tiny computer and a body to make music. >> show me how it works. >> we will put our hands on the arm rests and all we do is touch our hands together and it makes a musical note. that note is because electricity is flowing through our bodies right now. >> our hands are actually completing the electrical circuit. >> less touching is a lower note. more touching makes it higher. >> the idea is to get people to experiment. >> where people can give each
6:36am
other high-fives or even kiss and make the connection. >> we are not going to -- >> no, we don't have to do that on tv. >> okay. but we are holding hands. >> yes. that's fine. >> that's so cool. again, abc7 is the official tv partner of the exploratorium and we are, sighted about the opening of the new location on the embarcadero. again, that's april 17th. so over the next few weeks we will bring you exclusive access and the first look at the new exploratorium here on abc7 news. >> coming up next, the supreme court is just days away from taking up the day over proposition 8. we will tell you when the supreme court justices are expected to make a ruling on california's ban on same-sex marriage. and here's a live look outside from mount camel. the damage cam. it's coming up at 6:30. beautiful sunrise getting underway this morning t should be nice today but things will change later in the week.

>> it's been an incredible experience and it's turned out to be a historic one. >> chris perry and sandy are one of the two couples behind the lawsuit challenging proposition 8, california's ban on same-sex marriage. since the measure's passage in 2008, polls show public sentiment has dramatically shifted. >> i think same-sex couples should be able to get married. >> even president obama supports marriage for the nation's gays and lesbians and his administration has filed a brief an their behalf with the supreme court. >> if we are successful and we prevail and no lower court rulings are reversed and proposition 8 goes away. that will be our goal. we will have reached our objective. it will also send a message to the rest of the country. >> but it will not change the minds of critics like bill may, who campaigned on behalf of prop 8. >> it's not about same-sex marriage, it's about the question of whether marriage should be redefined to eliminate the only institution that has kids with moms and dads. >> we aren't trying to redefine
6:41am
marriage, we are trying to have access to marriage. that's what it is about. equal access to an institution that clearly the american society holds dear. >> they said they feel a sense of honor and responsibility for their role in this historic case. it's unclear if the justices will rule narrowly just on california or make a 50-state decision. both sides are optimistic. >> we are very confident that the court will uphold the will of the voters to define marriage between a man and a to woman. >> the justices are expected to rule by the end of june. in san francisco, carolyn tyler, abc7 news. >> and carolyn tyler is traveling to washingtin, d.c. she will be sitting in court when the supreme court considers proposition 8 and the defense of marriage act. her report begins tuesday.

6:47am
pressure in control with the jet stream allowing for some mild to warm air once again. there is a system cueing up offshore. it will just bring us some higher clouds today, but eventually with the systems coming in from the north, weakening the ridge and the system dropping out of the gulf of alaska, another stem. that should set the stage for what could be a few areas of some sprinkles early in the week and then more significant rain as we head toward the end of the week. so here we are tomorrow afternoon. notice the increasing clouds and then as we go through the early part of the week, we've got more clouds. a few showers offshore by tuesday morning. then by wednesday, through the overnight hours, yeah, we have another weak system that could bring us a few light showers along the coast. so this is all ahead of the more promising system that's not going to come in until perhaps next friday. but back home today we've had the 60s and 70s day after day and today no different with mostly sunny conditions. temperatures just near
